After many near misses over the last two years, Mark Lennox/Ian Beamond secured their first overall victory as the romped home to take a comfortable win on the Moonbeam Rally.

Top seeds James Dowley/Max Freeman matched the winners’ pace over the opening sections and, despite fading brakes, maintain their challenge until their engine threw a belt at around the halfway point. Lennox/Beamond then charged home to win by over a minute and a half. Phil Jones/Clive Jones fended off a string challenge from son and father pairing of Dan Darkin/Nick Darkin to take the runner up spot.

Tim Owen/Ryan Griffiths had led the Novices at Petrol, and were inside the top ten overall, but a broken drive shaft put them out soon afterwards.
